White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday afternoon that President Joe Biden is considering “executive action” on gun control, effectively bypassing Congress to push an anti-gun rights agenda.
Speaking at her daily press conference, Psaki said Biden was considering a “range of options” but that the use of an executive order was not off the table.
“We are considering a range of levers, including working through legislation, including executive action,” Psaki said. “That has been under discussion and will continue to be under discussion.”
Psaki added that, as Vice President under then-president Barack Obama, Biden was tasked with researching whether and how a White House executive order could be used to curb gun rights.
